John Lennon was almost 10 years older than me when I graduated from H.S. and I'm nearly 70 now... that difference in age is about how long it takes to become a doctor, e.g., four years of undergraduate study, four years of medical school and a year or more in residency. For many, Lennon probably had more impact on a 17 or 18 year old H.S. graduate than a 28 year old medical doctor.


Or it could have simply been about getting high, having sex and listening to rock music,
